The Darkness was a lot of fun. And although a different developer (Top Cow) is handling the sequel, we still have really high hopes.
An evil entity simply called "The Darkness" has invaded the body of Jackie Estacado. Being a guy who often has to kill for a living, the bond actually wasn't a bad fit. But then the mafia targeted Jackie (we're not sure why) and they took the one thing he cared about: his girlfriend, Jenny. With her death, Jackie goes a little nuts…and The Darkness loves it. Here's our best look yet at the long-awaited sequel, which features not two, but four demon arms. That oughta be interesting.
It's slated to release in February and that may seem like a long wait, but time flies. The timing isn't bad; having it release during the packed fall schedule might've been suicidal. This game needs a fighting chance to succeed and if it's as entertaining as the first title, we say it deserves any success it gets.
